Their Trash = My Treasure

So last night I saved this little lovely from our neighbor's trash:


Old, weathered and gorgeous!  (As well as extreeeeeemely heavy!)  I saw it yesterday morning but waited until the cloak of darkness fell before nabbing it so that I wouldn't be recognized.  After all, I don't want to become known as the crazy garbage-picking lady from down the street... even if that's what I am....  

The same neighbors may also be throwing out an old record player cabinet... which I may have to go back for tonight...  

...maybe...

But as for the little door, there are so many possibilities!  I could hang it on a wall, use it as an actual door to one of our attic crawl spaces, make it into some sort of table, or just prop it in a corner like the photo above.  I'm leaning towards the first option if it isn't too heavy to hang.  I think it could use just a touch more distressing as well :-)

What do you guys think?
